  Ok, thanks for the help that makes more sense.  I can modify my checkout
scripts to make the necessary directory changes, as long as I know what I
want to do is not supported.

Sorry, I misunderstood the problem.  You're correct, you can't use -d with
subdirectories when using client/server.  (This is the result of a
design decision that made perfect sense in standalone mode that had
unfortunate consequences in client/server mode.)  So, instead of:

        cvs co -d www/project1 project1/www

just do:
        (mkdir www; cd www; cvs co -d project1 project1/www)
